Top Ten Tuesday today is Character Traits that Make You Love Them which sounded like the perfect chance to do an ode to the characters I love.

Joker

Directed By: Todd Phillips

Some interesting topics like art, censorship, the cultural responsibility of artists, violence in films, etc are involved. Not to mention why the yelling over this particular film and not countless other super violent movies that come out?

Harley Quinn Gets Her Own Movie

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

The Harley Quinn movie trailer is here (also known as Birds of Prey) and while it looks fun I’m also once again glad it’s not Gotham City Sirens.
